How have the Raptors not made use of the amnesty provision yet? When you think about a CBA clause that allows a team a one-time shot at getting out from under a bad NBA contract, you think of general managers like Bryan Colangelo that necessitate such a provision in the first place.
Good old Heat, you can always count on them for a win. The Raptors have absolutely OWNED them over the last few seasons, winning 8 of the last 10. Arse hit the nail on the head when he said that a win was more a signal of the continued resurgence than a feather in the cap. However, 5th is better than 6th, and the things that usually drive me crazy about Raptor games, didn’t even bother me one bit.
